Around Town with KELLY

The Stoney Point Fire Department is typically not in the business of scaring people, but they do just that each year at Halloween in the name of charity. This year marks the 11th year that station 13 is putting on the Trail of Terror and Haunted House celebration for the community. Last year and over 15,000 visitors came through the event.

The event benefits their district by providing the department with additional tools needed to protect the community. Individual donations, in conjunction with the Trail of Terror, directly support their Emergency Services Operations and Mission.  Contributions from this fundraiser are spent on an assortment of emergency equipment, replacing worn out equipment and various uniforms. Some funds are re-invested back into the Trail of Terror to make improvements.

Helping to build the trail, 20 firefighters work numerous hours both day and night, and they use approximately 100 volunteers and actors on the trail.

What do the proceeds from ticket sales go toward?

• Replacement Cardiac Science Defibrillators for our Apparatuses (These critical life saving devices were utilized numerous times over the last twelve months saving several lives)
